GATESHEAD chairman Graham Wood has denied the Blue Square Premier club are set to secure the sensational signing of Sol Campbell on a free transfer.

The Tynesiders had been strongly linked with a move for the 36-year-old, who was capped 73 times by England and is best known for his two spells with Arsenal.

Campbell also played for Tottenham, Portsmouth, Notts County and Newcastle, making 503 Premier League appearances.

The defender joined the Magpies just last summer but was released in May after playing just seven games.
